Looking to sail around the world as volunteer crew like us? It can be hard to find out what’s out there and when to be where to get your next ride. As we travel, we will keep this page updated with the different pieces of info and events we find out about. This list is not comprehensive and there are a lot of ways to find boats to crew on. To find out more about volunteer crewing you can check out our How to Crew page or jump over to our blog and see how we do it!
If you have a specific question, please feel free to send us an email or leave a comment and we will answer you as soon as we hit land again.
Also, sign up for our email list on the top left of the page and we will email you whenever we update this site with new information on volunteer crewing.
Please note that this information is simply what we’ve cobbled together from our experiences sailing around the world and talking with fellow sailors. We have no control over these organizations or what they do, or don’t do. We do not necessarily endorse a particular event or ship unless we specifically say so. What we’re saying here is that your life is your responsibility. Use this information at your own risk and for your own benefit!
